About Turkey

Turkey Express Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Istanbul

Adorned with treasure from all periods of human history, Istanbul is not only one of the world's most fascinating places, it's also one of its most mesmerising.

Day 3 Gallipoli Peninsula

The Gallipoli Peninsula, a place of devastation and tragedy during World War I, is a place of great beauty and a memorial to all soldiers that fell there.

Days 4-5 Ayvalik (May-September)

With a picturesque harbour facing the Aegean Sea, relaxed waterside cafes, hills of olive groves and nearby idyllic islands, Ayvalik exudes Turkish charm.

Day 6 Selcuk

Selcuk's claim to fame is its proximity to the amazing ruins of Ephesus, although it has its own charm with its orchards, forests and strong cultural roots.

Day 7 Pamukkale

The arresting cascade of travertines and nearby hot springs have attracted visitors to Pamukkale since ancient times.

Days 8-10 Antalya

With cobblestone streets and beautifully preserved Ottoman-style buildings, Antalya's Old Town lies along Turkey's Mediterranean coast and looks on to picturesque mountains.
